Hi. . .

 

There were 7 dumps in the zip file -- one of them was zero bytes in size meaning that some hardware phenomenon occurred where Windows either could not write a dump or the system crashed so fast that Windows did not have time to write a dump.

 

Only 3 dumps named iastor.sys - see if you can find an update at Intel - https://www.sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=iaStor.sys

 

The other 3 dumps named "unknown image" as the cause. This usually means that an unknown hardware failure condition exists.

 

Run memtest86+ one stick at a time; alternate the slots - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/3909-test-ram-memtest86.html

 

Run SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/4072-hard-drive-hdd-diagnostics.html

 

Unfortunately, the dumps are incapable of telling us the exact piece of hardware that has failed.

 

I believe your system issues go beyond updating the Intel storage driver; just not sure whether or not hardware failure is involved too - and if so, which piece of hardware it is that failed.

 

I sit on the software side of the fence and don't have much experience with hardware beyond replacing a HDD and RAM in my laptop.

 

Regards. . .
